Walking bisons: more than fifty individuals appeared 15 kilometers from the city
This morning a large herd of bisons has passed by a field between Bogushovka and Ogorodniki villages of Grodno’s region. Apparently, animals were interested in juicy winter-crops that they decided to feed on. The herd of more than 50 goals is the bisons micropopulation from Ozyory. APC "Ozyory Grodno region" began to bred the animals in 1998, and today there are more than three hundred of individuals.
Population of bisons increases each year, so it is not surprise that animals often leave the forest and fall into lenses of camera. However indigenous people say that they have not seen such large herd yet.
- I’ve been living here for about 30 years, but it was my first time with so many bisons. Usually they run or pass alone or as a couple. More often, of course, we observe elks than bisons. It’s amazing to see such herd! - said a resident of Ogorodniki village – Yuri.
